Oba Akiolu told the President that the moment he wins the 2019 election, he should close the border so that Obasanjo won’t escape.

Concise News reports that the monarch gave the President this advice in an interview with Punch newspaper.

His words: “The moment he wins the election, he should close the border so that Obasanjo won’t escape,” the Oba said.

“Obasanjo should change his ways. An adage says that a deity that we try every possible thing to put in a place of honour that defies all such gestures would expose itself to ridicule at the end of the day.”

Meanwhile, Obasanjo endorsed Atiku Abubakar, a candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for 2019 Presidential election.
